Luther is a great instructor, I came to take the class because I wanted to learn some good vocal techniques. I am not a signer but am planning to be part of a choir. He is quite knowledgeable, patient and is a great listener. I like that he is very serious about ensuring your success and knowing that has helped me to build my confidence.
David N.
Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.
Geoff K.
I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

Private Acoustic Guitar Teacher

My students have spanned every age, experience level, and walk of life through the years... Some wanted to join a band, some wanted to go on to music school, some were aspiring songwriters, and others were simply interested in an awesome hobby! I've been teaching acoustic guitar for over 13 years and teach a mix of playing technique, music theory, ear training, as well as working on songs and styles of playing that the student is interested in. Along with my teaching experience, I have plenty of stage and studio experience as well which allows me to bring those things to the table. More real world and less dry and academic you might say...

About Cameron

STUDYING WITH ME: Learning guitar should be interesting and fun! While we're studying all the different aspects of the instrument, you'll also be learning how to play your favorite songs and solos! I approach each student as an individual and structure their lessons according to what I determine

Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.
Pat A.
A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

I've been working with Brian for four months now and have made excellent progress on guitar. Brian quickly adjusted to my experience level and has done an outstanding job of removing long-standing bad habits and reinforcing the good ones. He has a fresh approach which ensures students don't get bored and, best of all, instills confidence and a good stage presence. I'm on my way to being a better guitar player but more importantly, a better musician. I recommend Brian without reservation.

I enjoy working with students of all ages and ability levels. With over 10 years of teaching experience, I’m confident that I can help you learn how to play more proficiently on the guitar and gain more satisfaction from your playing. I do not think that there is one “correct” approach to learning and I find that working on a variety of genres helps students grow the fastest while enjoying the process.

With an efficient combination of exercises, technical development and song learning, you'll see yourself improving on your instrument faster than you thought possible.

Warren
Andrew is an excellent instructor and group director. He understands his craft very, very well and is able to instruct in a clear and effective manner. He has the ability to teach all ages, from young beginning musicians to senior citizens of all experience levels. His instructions lead to learning how to play very quickly. He matches his level of instruction both to the student's needs and desires. Andrew does not get locked into strict methods that can become quite boring like some other instructors, but rather tailors his instructions to the individual. If you have the desire to learn, Andrew will take you where you want to go with music. It is important to note that, as well as guitar, Andrew can play and teach drums, keyboard, bass guitar, and trombone. Thus, Andrew knows well how to blend these instruments into an effective group. He knows how to lead a band and get the most from the group.
Andrew is well educated in music. In addition to his teaching and directing abilities, he demonstrates exceptional professionalism in all he does. I have seen him work with venues to set up performances. He is clearly respected by the venues as well as his peers. I have seen his peers seek his advice on music matters relating to instruction, direction, and arrangements. While serious in his endeavors, he also demonstrates a great empathy for people and a terrific sense of humor. I have seen parents and students request him specifically because of these fine qualities. Some people are born to do certain things in life. Andrew was born to inspire and teach music to anyone interested in learning.
People enjoy music in different ways. Andrew is able to understand people's musical interests and abilities and is able to adapt his instructions according to the individual's talents and desires. He responds well to his students questions and needs. He is interested in seeing his students grow and keeps adding more challenges as his students advance. If a student prefers to go in a different direction with lessons, Andrew quickly revises his approach. I was taught by Andrew for 4 years in private lessons and group band. He presented many different types of music, riffs, and styles. It is not a stretch to say that learning from Andrew is exciting and challenging.

He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him."

"My son has is going on his 4th lesson with Remi. I was amazed with how Remi has helped him not only to play the guitar but to also read music in such a very short time. He has enjoyed the practice lessons with Remi and always looks fwd to going home and working on his lessons. Remi is very good with my teenage son and sets a very entertaining and fun mood for learning his guitar (we love his humor). I highly recommend that if you are going to choose someone to teach you or your child how to play an instrument, Remi is the perfect choice. We plan to hopefully continue our lessons with him and look fwd to seeing our son progress more."

"I've been taking lessons from Ahmad for a couple years and can say he is a very engaging and knowledgeable instructor. Ahmad is experienced in many different styles of music and can help you to play anything you want. He will also show you the techniques necessary to play any song and the theory to go along with it. It's a bit overwhelming, as learning guitar isn't an easy process, but Ahmad is more than capable of guiding you wherever you want to go.

Ahmad was recommended to me by a co-worker but prior to discovering him I researched a few other instructors. Ahmad seems to be quite generous with his time and fees compared to other instructors I researched. He is also very flexible when it comes to teaching venue and will teach at your house if desired.

Based on my experience over the past two years I can highly recommend Ahmad Lee if you are looking for guitar instruction."

"I should note first that Calvin is teaching my 13-year-old son both piano and guitar (electric and acoustic) and has been for nearly two years now. Calvin is an excellent instructor and really inspires my son to try harder to improve his skills on all three instruments. He is patient, but has high expectations and he supports and encourages by sharing his own stories of his life in music and how he has had to work to perfect a skill or overcome a difficulty. He challenges my son just above his ability level so it is not stressful, but it isn't easy either. Calvin is great at helping students develop expression so the piece sounds really good, while also encouraging the student to add his own style, when it is appropriate. Calvin is flexible and communicative. We home school and he is very kind in helping us come up with a manageable schedule. We are so grateful for Calvin and his sharing the gift of music with our family. I recommend him without reservation."
